SignShop v4

SignShop allows you to set up physical shops by punching a chest with your items you want to sell, then punching a sign (while holding redstone dust). It's easy to set up, and even easier to customize!


This plugin requires Vault and a vault compatible economy plugin.

For Minecraft 1.8 - 1.12 use this version.
For Minecraft 1.13 - 1.19 use this version.
Basic Signs:
[Buy] Allows players to buy items from a chest.
[Sell] Allows players to sell items to a shop.
[Trade] Allows players to trade one set of items for another.
[iBuy] Admin shop that allows players to buy infinite items. 
[iSell] Admin shop that allows players to sell infinite items.
[iTrade] Admin shop that allows players to trade one set of items for another an infinite number of times.

Example SignShop


This is an example of how to set up a [Buy] sign with SignShop. The sign above is linked to a chest containing items. In this example, it will sell an enchanted pickaxe for 600 Waffles (Waffles are our server's currency :-) ).
